A perfect introduction to Hobart full of highlights and hidden treasures. Learn about the fascinating Indigenous and colonial history through fun, informative tales. Walk the streets of Salamanca and Battery Point, local markets, galleries and villages, meet the makers and get orientated on this personalised urban experience.
Suggested but highly flexible itinerary:
Be picked up from your hotel at 10 am by your expert Localing host for a morning (or afternoon) exploring Hobart on foot, getting acquainted with the city through the eyes of a well-informed and connected local host.
Wander the historic backstreets and waterfront area of Salamanca and Battery Point. Learn about the city’s humble beginnings and fascinating convict heritage as well as its rapid rise and recent acclaim as a major culinary and cultural destination.
Stop in for a pastry and coffee in one of our favourite local bakeries. Chat with local makers about Hobart’s emergent dining scene and the recent journey from conservatism to creativity.
Walk the historic boulevards of downtown, passing through local markets (on market days) and stunning urban gardens. Admire street art, independent retail and plenty of stunning Victorian architecture.
Stop for a great local lunch at a cool café in North Hobart or one of the city’s more elegant restaurants.
Spend the afternoon exploring some of the city’s vibrant local neighbourhoods like North or West Hobart. Visit a historic local brewer or world-class distillery, eclectic, independent shops and fine food stores.
For those seeking the ultimate birds-eye view, a trip up Kunanyi (Mt. Wellington) is an excellent addition and a great spot to finish up.
Return to your hotel between 4 and 5 pm or have your host leave you at a lovely waterfront spot for local cheese and wine.
